Not sure what you mean here. The residences are shown on the marriage certificate and James Murray married Mary ‘Conly’.
Here they are in 1901

Here is Owen Murray’s birth : https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1890/02446/1909496.pdf

It looks as though Mary (Connolly) Murray is sister to your Bridget.
At least that’s how I think it is working out.  :-\

That was answered in the earlier posts  but then you mentioned  James Murray  ???

Yes, Michael Connolly’s wife seems to be Mary Connolly - Maria in church records

Are you happy with this now?
From the parish records of the children’s marriages, she is named as Connolly.

Unfortunately parish records don’t cover the time period for their marriage.

There were a lot of Connollys in the area. That birth for the young John who died, shows his mother as a Connolly too so if they were related, and it seems likely as Michael was the informant, it could be through either parent in both families - difficult.

Possibly a sister to Bridget - marriage of Anne Connolly and John Evans - same residence and father Michael (alive) in 1881

The church record gives parents as Peter and Maria Connolly  :-\

It is easier to read on Ancestry

Hello, Sorry to wade into an old thread, but the Anne Connolly and John Evans in the quote above were my Great Grandfather and Mother.
They both moved to Liverpool and I must admit I have not followed the Connolly line back any further, but think I may need to try and unravel that side of my family.
Interesting thread though!
